"NIV First Century Study Bible" with notes by Kent Dobson

Have you ever wondered what it was during Bible times, especially when you are reading a passage of Scripture? How about having  a map at your fingertips while reading? In this new study Bible, readers get those opportunities and more to step back in time.

Opening this Bible is like taking a step back in history. The pages come alive with things like: "Word Studies," "A Day in the Life," maps, drawings, pictures, etc. One example is Solomon's Temple. Not only are the pictures located in the right place (I Kings 6) but, there is a bit of extra information as well. The pictures certainly bring each topic to life! Each Bible book has an introduction with historical facts and artifacts. At the end, readers will find tables, Endnotes, a Topical Index of Articles, a Glossary, and a Concordance. With this Bible, the reader will have pretty much everything they need to study at their fingertips.

I really like the features of this Bible. Maps and word studies are great to delve into as I am reading my Bible. I also really enjoy the introductions at the beginning of each book. The pictures of historical artifacts show me something tangible from the timeframe. If you enjoy studying your Bible, no matter which version you prefer, this one will hold treasures for you. I received my review copy from the Book Look program in exchange for an honest review.
